Some people claim that the Internet has led to a decrease in reading and a reduced interest in books. I can't say whether that's true or not, but I do know that thanks to the Web, there's more access than ever to free books!
You can download thousands of books from throughout history completely free no matter where you go. Additionally, authors from around the world are publishing their work online and it's freely available for you to download.
I have the perfect site for you to check out. Feedbooks is a well-stocked source of digital book downloads where you can find works in dozens of genres.
You can download the plays of William Shakespeare, explore the writings of history's great philosophers or read the fiction of H.G. Wells and Mark Twain. The list goes on.
